New Stretch Fit Drive Systems Demand New Solutions
Belts, with exclusive self-tensioning technology, are the first and only Aftermarket belts engineered to fit like a glove and perform properly on these unique stretch fit drive systems.
- Patented highly engineered EPDM belt ribs are extremely resistant to oil leaks, wear and pilling
- New TwistLock® technology provides the strength and flexibility of advanced polyamide tensile cord
- Specially formulated adhesive locks onto the cord allowing it to elongate and stretch, but never lose tension
Prior to installation, Stretch Fit® belts are shorter than the actual working length, but once installed they automatically tension – maintaining the proper tension over the life of the belt and ensuring optimum load-carrying capacity.
This tool is required for proper installation to avoid damaging the belt.
